Miss D speaks up

To really understand what the Knicks and D'Antoni are trying to do, listen to what D'Antoni's wife, Laurel, had to say. Sometimes coaches are too wrapped up in the daily grind to really explain what is happening with their team. Laurel hears about the game from Mike all the time, and from his dad, Lewis, a legendary high school coach who lives with the family. She has seen this team develop with her own eyes as well and watched yesterday's victory intently.

"I think, for him, the most important thing," Laurel said of her husband, "is to bring something that the New Yorkers are going to fall in love with because he's the guy who falls in love with his team. The team is like his kids. He loves these guys. [Team president] Donnie Walsh did an incredible job recruiting. They want to make sure they go slow and easy and they raise these kids right."
